Re: Cross-Chase

On most platforms I know (Windows is none of them), Docker can be told to use (mount) a local directory by a configuration dialog. This is where your source could should be, I guess.

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

Norm, I was actually thinking of providing some articles on some QL subjects to your always excellent fish-wrap :shock: , but never found the time to actually come around and write up something useful. I promise I'll keep on thinking about it ;) In earnest: Yes, I'd be glad to write something (maybe...

Re: World Cup 2018 Including Patio Chair Sweepstakes

I was about to call out for Winston Churchill, Queen Victoria, William Shakespeare and especially the Monty Pythons, ... but....

No, I won't.

Re: Request for advice: programming a TASK (not a JOB) in C68...

In Tebby-speak, a task is a piece of code which is called by an interrupt, the poll timer routines or the scheduler loop - Typically part of a device driver. If that's what you want to write, it is perfectly possible to do that (I have been writing a device driver in C68 for a while now, and it work...

Russia doesn't have Patio Chairs - They tend to throw 3-feet logs around.

Re: WTD: UK layout USB keyboard

One thing that has come out of this: the discussion of where we might insert a Euro symbol into the QL ASCII map? That discussion has already ended: SMSQ/E puts the € character at CHR$(181) The key combination associated with that character is <CTRL><SHIFT>U. I don't see a point in changing this. T...

Re: QDOS For Amiga

I did. (Rather, I tried "QDOS Classic for Amiga", which is the same, but newer thing) And, yes: It works. And fast (If working on a white keyboard instead of a black one is not too disturbing to your mind). "Feels" close to QPC on a fast PC. Still need to get some benchmarks goin...

Re: SMSQ/E sources - mirror git repository

Obviously, holding the sources in now 3 (!) different places (it is absolutely not clear to me why it needs to be on GitHub twice, btw) holds the danger of splitting SMSQ/E development into various branches, especially when people don't know where the master is stored. I don't even dare to think wha...
